Dimensions on a soccer pitch?

Recommended Posts

If the distance from the six yard box to the edge of the penalty box is 36 ft and a free kick is given 5ft outside the box how can a referee justify MAKING the defending team stand on the six yard line when the distance defenders legally  have to retreat is 30 feet(10 yards) ? What am I missing?

More pressingly, who measures pitches in feet rather than yards

Translations for you! 36 feet is10.928 meters 5 feet is 1.524 meters and 30 feet is 9.144 meters. Does that make it more understandable?

Yup, ref's a numpty. I'd be taking this up with the governing body. Especially if you have footage.
